Regarding Stahl House. Designed by architect Pierre Koenig for C.H. “Buck” and Carlotta Stahl, the house is considered an iconic representation of modern architecture during the twentieth century. It was made famous by a Julius Shulman photograph showing two women leisurely sitting in a corner of the house with a panoramic view of the city through floor-to-ceiling glass walls.
The Case Study Houses were experiments in American residential architecture, sponsored by Arts & Architecture magazine, which commissioned major architects of the day to design and build inexpensive model homes for the United States residential housing boom after the end of World War II.
In 2013 the Stahl House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
